A mate of mine and his partner have a 94/95 ? Pajero.

Anyone with a similar vehicle who has installed an aux batt ?? They are keen to do so, so I figure I'll ask those who've been there/done that.

Ta in advance

Cheers

P.S.

They are also considering a 2nd hand 50l Waeco, asking price $750. My thoughts are that that's a bit steep, what do you troops reckon ??

3.0lt Petrol or Diesel.? I have installed a second battery in a 93 3.0lt petrol. Relatively straight forward job. Can supply photos if required.

I had the auxiliary battery in the Paj of that vintage. I recall I had to relocate the cruise control unit and the fuel vapour canister so it would fit in the left side of the engine bay.

I fitted one to my 94 Triton Diesel and it was a piece of cake. Spend the money and get a battery holder from ARB or similar. If the Pajero is the same as the Triton There is a Fusable link box under the bonnet. Cut the link in the box to separate the lights, aux etc and wire your aux battery into the parts of the car you want. Install a solenoid that operates off your ignition and wire the alternater and main battery off one side and the aux battery on the other. The trick is to get a timer that will run for 30 seconds to stop the solenoid from activating while you start the car. I had one so the whole excercise cost me a battery, solenoid $60 and a battery holder $90. I have ( or should I say the kids have after turning my lights on while it was in the garage ) flattend the battery fully and had no issues starting the car.

Have had 92 pajero, 95 pajero and now 97 Pajero. All have had dual Batteries fitted. 92 & 95 had no cruise control and was quite simple. Battery box to suit is available from 4wd shops with only two holes to drill and will take a N70Z Battery. Battery box about $130. Had to move the carbon canister to the drivers side. With the 97 NL 3.5 litre the battery tray only just clears the cruise control, however a N70Z battery will not clear the fuel lines. A suitable battery for this is a N50Z, which is about 25mm shorter than the N70Z. All my vehicles were fitted with a manual switching device which I have found to be more reliable and less hassle that a automatic setup.

I do not use a second battery. I upgraded the main to a 700 CCA and use a power pack in the rear. Never had a problem to this day.
